Margaret Mary Elizabeth Joyave (nee Mechlinski), 69, of Chandler, Arizona, passed away from
Covid-19 on July 4, 2020, while residing in a skilled nursing facility.
She was born to the late Paul and Anna Mechlinski, August 6, 1950, in Baltimore, Maryland.
Margaret attended St. Martin’s Catholic High School and later obtained her GED only to
continue college at Catonsville Community College.
She married the late Edward Morris Joyave in 1969, and they lived together in Baltimore for 63
years before relocating to Chandler, Arizona. Margaret is survived by two children: Daniel Paul
Joyave and his wife Beth, of Painesville, Ohio; and Christina Marie Joyave and her husband,
Harris Eltezam, of Gilbert, Arizona; and several nieces and nephews in Maryland. Margaret was
predeceased by her loving husband in 2017, her sister Darlene Ahlas, and her parents.
Margaret was employed by ADT security systems for 29 years, where she learned computer data
operations and management. She loved reading novels, working on various crafts with her
children, and fantastic costume designs for Halloween. She was charismatic and had a wonderful
sense of humor. Margaret loved traveling with her husband cross-country, camping in
Pennsylvania Dutch Country with her family, the beach, and was the coordinator of every family
holiday gathering.
Margaret was and will always be a beautiful, caring woman who had countless talents. Margaret
is the epitome of a wife, mother, sister, aunt, and a genuine blessing to her family and those who
knew her.
The family has decided to hold a Celebration of Life at a later date due to Covid-19.
The family insists that people make donations, in her name, in support of a breast cancer research
organization of your choosing, in lieu of sending flowers.
